Couponing is my Hobby or I guess more like a lifestyle. I'd be lost without it. I started a little of 2 years ago and hold a stockpile in my house worth over $100.000 and let me tell you it's worth the time and energy I put into it. Not only is my family provided for , so is my extended family and friends, coworkers also local churches and food banks. Couponing to me is a skill and if you work hard at it each time you go you will get better and better. Trust me I know what your thinking sure she makes it seem easy but I just can't seem to figure it out. I WAS THAT LADY BEFORE ALSO. But I worked hard studied how to do it for 6 months yea I'm not kidding 6 months on top of being a full time mother , housewife, district manager to a hospital and the crafty cooking mom I am everyday... So after studying atleast 2 hours everyday for 6 months.. I went on my first haul or so they call it. I saved a little over $50.00 I thought I was queen of that grocery store. That little bit of savings kicked up some energy and I studied more. Trip after trip I would save more and more. I couldn't get enough like an addiction that was paying me ( clearly my husband loved this idea a shopaholic wife that didn't spend money ) I have my binder , I follow all the rules and I just match up the deals eventually you figure out the science to it. My local grocery store runs the same deals every two weeks. Then there the stores that are good deals at everyday prices. .. I'll stop here I'm rambling on and getting all hyped up to share my love of saving money with all of you. Im new to circle of moms but Ive been blogging for years. I'm gonna update some deals and tell you how I can help you get to where I am . I love seeing people couponing like me .. WHO wants to Pay full price - SAID NOBODY EVER!
